Try This Murray State Solution: Settle It On the Court

I love March Madness. There’s nothing like watching teams from small conferences battle it out for the opportunity to earn a spot on the big stage. However, I’m not suggesting that the process is perfect. Every year, it seems there’s a No. 1 seed that gets upset in the conference tournament and misses out on a chance to play in the Big Dance. It could happen again this spring...

Murray State Pitcher Has One Of Most Insane Leg Kicks Ever Seen (Photo)

John Lollar is more flexible than you. Lollar is a pitcher for the Murray State baseball team, and he’s ascended to relative baseball Internet fame thanks to what he’s able to do with his left leg, specifically during his windup.
